A witty, affectionate marriage poem in a gorgeous chunky beech frame.
This witty, heartfelt A6 framed postcard makes the perfect wedding present. It's also a romantic gift for a partner - whether it's for a birthday, anniversary or even Valentine's Day.
Written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller, this 20 line poem captures the range experiences and emotions that love inspires - hence it is often used as a wedding reading.
The font is a dark shade of taupe - slightly lighter than the images suggest.
Whether it's tender supporting, or raucous cavorting, everyone will recognise the experiences described in 'What is a Marriage?'
What is a Marriage?
It’s loving & cherishing, hopefully relishing
It’s hosting & toasting & Sunday roasting
It’s having & holding, the odd little scolding
It’s guessing, confessing & nightly undressing
It’s trying, relying, a little white lying
It’s snoring, adoring, occasionally boring
It’s enduring, alluring & most reassuring
It’s knowing & showing, & mutually growing
It’s compliment giving & always forgiving
It’s sharing & caring & dressing gown wearing
It’s walking, it’s talking & bottle uncorking
It’s tender supporting & raucous cavorting
It’s secret confiding & shoulder providing
It’s readily praising & often amazing
It’s loving, respecting & calmly accepting
It’s cleaning, it’s mopping, it’s waltzing & bopping
It’s needing, conceding & possibly breeding
It’s playing & paying, it’s coping & staying
It’s comfort when weeping, a warm body sleeping
It’s lives interweaving & always believing
That’s what makes a marriage.
